Gustavia

The dive site, Gustavia, in Guadeloupe, is a wreck lying 40 meters down. This is one of the rare moments a site is this deep in Deshaies. Despite its depth, the site is accessible to level 2 and higher because of its easy access. This 50-meter cargo ship began its career on the Caribbean Islands in 1953, but following a cyclone in 1989 was retired. After an environmental remediation in 1991, it was sunk to create an artificial reef. You can cross its hold alongside barracuda and pelagic fish
